Iconic British brands, Hackett and Aston Martin have collaborated once again creating an AW18 Aston Martin by Hackett collection. Both brands have their own distinct takes on luxury; and both have loyal followings who expect only the best. It makes sense then that the two would collaborate and produce a capsule line of clothing that combines Hackett’s renowned sense of Britishness with Aston Martin’s technical prowess.
The latest collection for AW18 Aston Martin by Hackett takes its inspiration from Aston Martin Racing, and while the clothes won’t make you a world class racing driver, they will add a touch of sporting class to your wardrobe. Highly technical fabrics are utilised throughout the collection, with water-resistant nylon jackets sitting alongside stretch cotton-pique polo shirts. With function in mind, some of the lightweight outerwear pieces feature taped seams and waterproof zips, ensuring you stay dry as you run from your car to the country club. Ideal for driving are the technical Moto jackets, which are cut short in the body from stretch fabrics – ensuring plenty of movement at the wheel – and feature multiple zipped pockets – perfect for storing the essentials.
Hackett’s relationship with Aston Martin stretches back many years with a successful partnership that started with Aston Martin Racing. Building on the foundations of that strong relationship, the Aston Martin by Hackett collection offers an all-new range of luxurious clothing that reflects the coming together of two stylish brands.
Jeremy Hackett, Chairman and founder of Hackett commented: ”I am very proud of the successful relationship that Hackett has forged with Aston Martin. We are both forward-looking brands with a strong focus on delivering a refined product to a discerning market. Taking the step from uniforms for the race team into a beautiful capsule collection of luxurious clothing has been a pleasure for Hackett and we believe we have created a collection that drives us to the next level in elegance and refinement.”
As we transition from the warm summer months into the crisp nature of autumn, Hackett London introduces the first trend story; Classics Reinvented. A collection of essential items designed to be layered and which confidently juxtapose texture, colour and warm fabrics in preparation as the days get shorter and colder. Giving ease to everyday dressing, our second trend story, Country Per Suits, is a complementary range with an edited selection of rugged and handsome casually tailored pieces that celebrate a classic British winter nodding to a country escape.
